StainTalk’s Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) Policy
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”), the text of which may be found on the U.S. Copyright Office website at http://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf, provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law.
StainTalk reserves the right to remove material on StainTalk.com which allegedly infringes another person’s copyright. If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any content on this website infringes upon your copyright, you may submit a notification pursuant to the DMCA by providing the following information in writing:
- Physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works on the Site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled and information reasonably sufficient to permit StainTalk.com to locate the material;
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit StainTalk.com to contact you, such as an address, telephone number and an electronic mail address;
- A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all the requirements of this Policy, your DMCA notice may not be valid. Please see 17 U.S.C. 512(c) (3) for further detail.
If a DMCA notice is valid, StainTalk is required by law to respond to it by disabling access to the allegedly infringing content. The provider of affected content may make a counter notification pursuant to sections 512(g) (2) and (3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. When we receive a counter notification, we may reinstate the material in question.
Counter notices must include the following or they will be deemed invalid:
- Your name, address, phone number and physical or electronic signature;
- Identification of the allegedly infringing content and its location before disabling access; and
- A statement under penalty of perjury explaining why the content was removed by mistake or misidentification.
Please note that you will be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity is not infringing the copyrights of others. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.
